By Creative Media TimesGorillaz‘s Jamie Hewlett last year stated that a new album will be released this year, and that looks exactly what’s about to happen, based on a series of clues teased by the band recently.
At this weekend’s All Points East festival in London, posters were seen on site which says “No more unicorns anymore.” The cryptic quote appeared on Hewlett’s Instagram post in April.
The posters also had the web address “thenownow.tv” and if you visit the website and play the clip, you’ll see, for a split second, a cartoon silhouette of a band member sitting with a guitar and it sends with the title “The Now Now,” and ends with the date June 29.
Last year, comic book artist Jamie Hewlett said that the band is set to release a new album in 2018. “We’re working on another Gorilllaz album that we’re going to be releasing next year,” he said in a interview last year.
The band returned last year with their fifth studio album “Humanz”, released April of last year after a long five-year hiatus. Then at their recent concert in Chile, they debuted a new song titled “Hollywood,” featuring Jamie Principle and Snoop Dogg, which frontman Damon Albarn referred to as a track from the new record.
